scene. and pristine window while come to news africa i'm glad you did the military in sudan is facing an ultimatum from the african union to hand over power to civilian government in just to be all face expulsion from the regional group mass prices in the country forced the army to remove president obama from power last week but protesters occupy these sites in the center of the capital far too demanding the complete removal of all vestiges of the regime that ruled the country feel free to create they've resisted attempts by the army to impose order at these sites occupied by the protesters. at. allegation
from the transitional military council which has ceased paul in sudan has traveled to neighboring ethiopia for talks with the african union here's what a sudanese military spokesman had to say about the transition process and the use to monde's. i would like to say that we are already in the process of choosing a prime minister and to form a civilian government. so we initiated this even before this session with the african union. this is our conviction and this is also the way forward to peace but also we respect it and we are committed to the decision of the a used peace and security council has it for them now there's been some angry reaction to the statement a huge chip isn't mostafa put on sudan in a tikhon dam sudan's military take of a saying it wasn't the appropriate response to the challenges facing the country well researcher and political commentator michael will be gave us his take on the statement and the reaction it sparked among some africans. african union has
a well articulated policy premix and yet it struggles to implement them so i personally think that it's a zero tolerance and meanings when it comes to military coups because already after the peace and security contingent they decided that yes. saddam function canceled military transition plans on the ground and over the party the civilians they were. definitely in course functions on them so i personally think it's high time that the african continent has had zero tolerance to one thousand meters to go. there was a no backlash towards the african union's criticism or military takeover i personally think one of the reasons is because there's always been a negative perception one of the country top forty. a lot of africans think that it's an x. exclusive for you or to sports and only speaks out when one of them is
to bolt. so how the challenge is that one hand operating in is determined to zero tolerance to once a military takeover and then the other hand you have how can africans actually celebrating or won't come. out the military costs is. when it comes to taking some of the longest serving leaders. that was research and political commentator michael corby speaking from johannesburg our next story is in uganda and that curious tailed off an island inhabited only by men and snakes about a thousand deadly cobras inhabit the island seen by the fishermen who live there as spirits rather than just snakes number some by linda since about five kilometers off the shore in lake victoria not that women are allowed on to the island only for
short visits they cannot stay over night. our correspondent julius maganda sent us this report from the island of snakes. island unlike victoria. home to over one hundred fifty thousand birds which give the island a rather particular sound. down below them on the ground a much quieter bastes over one thousand cobras from the island in a unique example of coexistence with man. but. do not be chinese snakes these are spirits of the island attached to our culture. over one hundred fishermen live on the island. and the man will cut on glee is the most experienced. he has lived here for more than forty five years.
an old man of the sea he has retired from commercial fishing. to ninety seven year old is the custodian of long held customs which for big killing the snakes they called reza believed to be the spirits of a south korean island. i don't really say yes never seen a cobra attack anyone except once when he was attacked himself. to go lower. i must have angered the snake when i carried it out of the house so that i could sleep at a crawl back in but picked it up again and threw it out and then went to bed early i will notice donna surely it crawled back in. this time and picked it up and it turned its head in bit me. on the snake shouldn't be harassed even if it means sharing a bed with some of. the
trees and this makes moves freely in and out of the wooden now since i have moved the old. one of the fishermen of no reason to panic some even think it's a blessing from the spirits. if it comes into your house that's a spiritual visit. just tell the snake you have no problem and it will not cause you any trouble. is. the name of the island. its traditions are rather strict no one cuts down a tree for any reason. buds to shouldn't be killed and their eggs must not be eaten. but the custom of the prohibits women on the island is the one that is toughest for the fishermen. so don't you know what i would be good to finish your work and go home
and see your family every day you know how your child spent the night to know what they read and unfortunately it's not possible here one of the pics so what. can tally has to leave the island at least once every two weeks to see his family. at this landing site cord. entirely also so the scotch. when the fishermen need to hear many wants to go to the island with him but he sees that only a limited number of the remote island. we came up with a resolution to use a space that can only accommodate up to two hundred people on the island. the rest of the land is on the conservation watch as breeding grounds for the. breeding ground for the words. traditionally women do not fish in this part of uganda. but some are curious about the full b.
